Update: This charity has been overwhelmed by the need and can no longer fulfill requests. They have no affiliation with Crayola and this article has been updated in response to their wish that we no longer send people to their website.
In case you haven’t heard by now, Crayola released Colors of The World products which allows every child to feel included and accurately color using the different skin tones of the world. And one company wants to help bring these products to classrooms across the nation.
In fact, (no longer available) Teachers And Educators Can Receive Free Colors of The World Crayons. Here’s How…
How Teachers Can Receive Free Crayons
The charity is a non-profit organization that was founded to focus on the small act of buying multicultural crayons, markers and colored pencils for schools and non-profit organizations they were familiar with within their local community.
